Obama’s achievements need to be considered in light of the most difficult strength of schedule that any president has had to face since FDR.

He seems to have all his priorities wrong. He worries about a minimal or non-existent backlash against the Muslims, way more than he worries about the attacks by Muslim terrorists against American citizens. In any conflicts where there is a slight hint of cops wrongdoing, he jumps to conclusion and rushes to attack the cops before knowing any details. He totally screwed up the Iran deal. He divided the country more than any time since the civil war. What a miserable presidency.

Comparatively speaking, we are light years behind other industrialized countries in terms of acknowledging the generational advantages that whites have enjoyed as opposed to the 400 years of economic oppression, legal educational segregation and social alienation from mainstream America. The vile animosity and the fomenting of fear of anyone that is not white. To deny the racial component generated by Mr. Trump and others along with the GOP Illuminati condoning this behavior is where the Republicans lose many minorities, including myself who have conservative leanings……..It is pathetic and shameful and as long as there is silence about this matter, they will continue to lose general elections so Thank you Mr. President, you have been the catalyst that has opened many eyes.. This is still the greatest place ever. Stop the xenophobic foolishness!

The republicans adopted the southern racists and got an inflated sense for a while of their own appeal as a party.

Well, the republicans are now at a decision point. Keep trying to please the klan (and lose national elections)…. or make a clean break and force the klan states to swim on their own.

We’ll see. Meantime, they keep losing elections.

The GOP cant seem to shake their white supremacist, xenophobic, and nativist roots. Ninety percent of GOP voters are white as compared to sixty two percent of Democratic voters. The Dems are an inclusive party, while the GOP is not.

His compromising attitude was a great mistake. A leader with his clear thinking must be imposing (Like Mr.Trump).

has been misused by opportunists, naturally. Unfortunately his own colleagues were cracking his glass ceiling . His level of judgement was too deep to be digested by others. He failed to understand the psychology of people working for him and around him. The best example his decisions about foreign policy matters. This fact was underlined even for heath care and gun laws. If he would have been little more imposing and steadfast like resigning on certain occasions, he would have been proved the best president because his intentions were good only to serve the country selflessly.
